GRIT Programs

Leadership GRIT™

Getting people to passionately engage, to dig deep and relentlessly pursue difficult, complex, protracted goals is what gritty leadership is all about. Leadership GRIT draws from the most advanced GRIT-based theory and practices to equip leaders to:

  • Grasp, appreciate, and apply Growth, Resilience, Instinct, and Tenacity first to one’s self and, second, to how one leads others
  • Upgrade both the quality and quantity of one’s personal GRIT
  • Lead others to set Gritty Goals, follow a Gritty Game Plan, and achieve more, in less time
  • Apply GRIT to how you recruit, develop, and advance your talent
  • Create a gritty culture, one that thrives on difficulty, struggle, and effort
  • Turn GRIT into a competitive weapon, to achieve otherwise unachievable gains
  • Applying GRIT to all facets of one’s personal life
  • Leave with measurable gains in individual and collective GRIT
